I still don't understand the alarm. Gays were already serving, now they can do so openly. Women were already coming home missing limbs and having PTSD, only now their work will be recognized.
nobody is asking women who don't want to do so to take those roles. It will simply open up opportunities for career advancement for women who want that life.

Exactly!!!  There isn't going to be a run of women signing up to drive a tank or an infantry scout.  You choose your career path mostly (unless you get a bad recruiter).  And the bulk of positions in the military aren't in direct combat so yall need to chill with that "I don't wanna die" whiningLOL

Women are less than 15% of the military so of course the numbers are low. But you don't remember when that white woman soldier jessica lynch was kidnapped and got a lot of press and the black woman who came home badly injured but got very little? Well she was crippled for sure for a time.

Theres also a new congress woman, Tammy Duckworth who's a former Iraqi war veteran who lost both her legs in combat.

Do you think this country [now] would  go along with a draft again?

not being facetious, I have really wondered about how the draft back in the day would work today. I don't think people would just automatically sign up now.

I was a 'baby' during the last draft, but I really felt for those men who didn't want to go but had no choice. Which is really why I'm all for this ban being lifted for the women who want to serve in combat, they now can. Choice, though.
